As we previously reported, back in March 2022, Samantha sued Meghan for defamation claiming Prince Harry’s wife had been pushing a false narrative about her childhood.

Samantha took particular issue with comments made during Meghan and Prince Harry’s 2021 interview with Oprah along with the 2020 biography Finding Freedom, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

Meghan’s half-sister said Harry’s wife grew up in elite private schools despite her claims of being “rags to royalty.” Samantha was upset that Meghan told Oprah she was an “only child” despite them sharing the same father, Thomas Markle.

Samantha claimed Meghan lied when she said the last time, they had seen each other was “18, 19 years ago and before that, 10 years before that.” In addition, Samantha said Meghan defamed her when her half-sister claimed Samantha had changed her last name after she started dating Prince Harry.

Meghan’s attempt to dismiss the lawsuit has been unsuccessful thus far. "This baseless and absurd lawsuit is just a continuation of a pattern of disturbing behavior. We will give it the minimum attention necessary, which is all it deserves,” Meghan’s lawyer said when the lawsuit was filed.

Recently, Samantha scored a small victory with the judge ordering Meghan to sit for a deposition in the matter.
